I love how each one seems to have its own personality.

This one is my favorite.

These are not decals. I paint them on so they are my own original creations. 

You don't have to paint one on every nail if you don't want to. One or two would look super cute! Here is an easy step by step to create them. I included some Amazon affiliate links & a Zoya link to help you find the perfect supplies.

How to Paint Ghost Nail Art


Polish your Nails
I polished my nails with Zoya Matte Velvet Lacquer in Savita. Savita has been discontinued.  Zoya Iris Matte Velvet is a beautiful substitute. 

The deep purple metallic matte finish is gorgeous. It makes a perfect background for my little ghosts.

Paint the White Ghosts
Paint each ghost with a small paint brush and white acrylic craft paint. I find acrylic paint easy to work with when painting small designs. It's also water based and dries fast. Paint an easy free form ghost shape. Let them all be different with their own little personalities.

Paint the Eyes and Mouths
Paint dots of black acrylic paint with the small paint brush for the eyes and mouths.

Add the Glitz!
Add some sparkle to give the ghosts their luminescence. Use the paint brush to dab on a bit of  Zoya Cosmo Pixie Dust and Zoya Hazel to each ghost.  While the polishes are still wet, sprinkle on a little loose iridescent silver glitter. Gently press it into the polish.

No top coat is used with matte nail polish to keep it's interesting matte finish. 

Topcoat can be added over the ghosts, though to make them glossy. 

My very favorite top coat is Seche Vite. It dries super fast and glossy! It's absolutely the best top coat!

I hope you enjoy creating your little ghost as much as I do!
 

Add a little whimsy to your nails!

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for good...surgery. It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

Dermatofibromas

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
